How I Clean my Makeup Brushes

Cleaning your makeup brushes is one of those things where you don’t always want to do it, but it must be done, to avoid bacteria build-up and therefore spreading it all around your face. Clean makeup brushes also help with your skin care of course! Today I thought I would show you how I clean my makeup brushes.

But first lets begin with what you will need!:

  • Your cleaning product, I’m using baby shampoo because it is very mild and makes the bristles super soft without actually damaging them!
  • A clean towel
  • Your sink
  • and of course your brushes!

Now here’s how I clean my brushes:

I start by Dampening the brushes with warm water, but not too hot because hot water can damage the bristles.

Lastly lay your brushes flat to dry on your towel. If you prefer you can hang them up, but I decided to just lay them flat.
